The story of Doug Jerebine is a tale of the mystical relationship of man and guitar. Jerebine's musical history is a wild crossing of rock 'n' roll and indian mysticism, the inner quest of one man on a musical journey from New Zealand, to London, India, and back to Waiheke Island where he currently resides half the year. Doug Jerebine performed in the Waiheke Community Library as part of New Zealand Music Month 2011 and was recorded by Brent Simpson for Waiheke Radio.
